There are ten columns in each line. The first column is the name of the surface as defined in the surfinfo.dat. The rest of the columns are the audio data in the order as shown above. To assign an audio to a surface, place a "1" in the corresponding column. You can assign more than one audio for each surface to create unique sound effects like creating mud.
